The injury occurred when he was trying to clean a machine and his hand came into contact with dangerous moving parts of the machine.

The risk from contact with moving parts of machinery is well known in the industry and should have been even more so with this company as they were prosecuted before in 2007.  A further fine was given to the company by the Northallerton Magistrates Court for this breach of Health and Safety.

This accident could have been avoided if measurers had been taken to prevent the movement of dangerous parts of the machine before any worker got too close, along with adequate training.

Hopefully being fined for the second time in four years will make this company now look at their Health and Safety  procedures much more closely.
